This is a short post in which I will show you how to install Vivaldi Web Browser on Ubuntu 20.04 / 19.10 that has recently come out.

Vivaldi is a quite instant web browser. Created and developed by a former Opera developer, it adds many particularly good options. For example, it uses the Blink engine which is the same as Google Chrome so we will have guaranteed compatibility and speed. On the other hand, it has quite a high customization capacity at almost all levels.

On the other hand, a web browser that does not support extensions is doomed to fail at this time. But as it is based on Chromium it is compatible with the great majority of Google Chrome extensions. So it is a great alternative to the most popular browsers today.

Installing Vivaldi web browser on Ubuntu 20.04 / 19.10

As already mentioned, Vivaldi has very good support for most Linux distributions. However, it is not in the official repositories of the Linux distributions. But we will be able to install it without problems.

First of all, go to Vivaldi’s website.

In the main screen, there it will be detected automatically which is the package that we should download. For example, as I have accessed from Ubuntu 20.04 / 19.10, it already tells me that I should download a DEB package.

By clicking on the green download button, you confirm that you are going to download the DEB package.

Then you have to install the package. You can open your file browser and double click on the package to install it graphically. However, faster and more efficient is the use of the terminal, so open it and locate it in the directory where it was downloaded, which is usually Downloads and install it:

:~$ cd Downloads/
:~$ sudo gdebi vivaldi-stable_3.1.1929.45-1_amd64.deb

Note: If gdebi is not installed. You can do it by running this command:

:~$ sudo apt install gdebi

Remember that the package name may change due to the downloaded version.

When the installation is finished, you can run it from the main menu. Normally in the Internet category.

So, enjoy it.

Conclusion

Vivaldi is a web browser that wants to have a place in an area quite marked by the giants Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge, but increasingly improves more and more to become a real alternative to them. On the other hand, installing Vivaldi on Ubuntu 20.04 / 19.10 is something simple and within everyone’s reach.
